Hawks, woodpeckers and a lubber

A Cooper’s hawk sitting near his nest. The babies were too small to see them when I took this. The nest was pretty far back off the boardwalk.

Juvenile red shoulder hawks were finally big enough to move around off the nest.

A pileated woodpecker and a downy woodpecker were both looking for bugs. The downy already had a snack.

Grasshoppers were starting to invade the park. This one is a baby lubber. He’ll turn all yellow when he grows up.

  1. Wonderful birds. When I think of the title of your blog along with the wonderful pictures you get so close to home .. In the city … It is such a great reminder of what an amazing state this is for birds!

  2. Hi Y’all!
    Love the bird photos. And the bunny. We seem to have lost all but one bunny. We have hawks, osprey and eagles. Osprey and eagles usually eat fish. However, we have seen a young eagle grab a bird or animal out of the wetland.
    Y’all come on by,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
